NMidtown, Manhattan
neighborhoodr-newyork:

Smithfield*, NYC’s newest sports bar in a class of its own, celebrates its Grand Opening this Tuesday, May 22, 6-8pm.
Built by veterans of the New York bar biz (Lunasa, Nevada Smiths), Smithfield emerges as a premier destination in the heart of Manhattan, just a few blocks from Madison Square Garden (Go Rangers!).
Smithfield is located at:
215 West 28th St. (btwn 7th & 8th Ave)

The product of nearly two years of hard work, the three floor tavern greets you with beautiful reclaimed wood, exposed brick, and warm lighting. State of the art LED HDTV’s are strategically placed throughout the ground floor bar for an unfettered view of your favorite sports event no matter where you sit. The Market Bar on the second floor, with windows opening on to 28th Street, has a more intimate atmosphere whilst retaining the vintage theme and is perfect for private parties and events. Finally, on our mezzanine, we have The Wallace Room, named after the famous Scottish rebel, Sir William Wallace better known to most as Braveheart. Rich mahogany and leather couches with a private bathroom and service bar are features of the room.

In addition to all local sports teams, Smithfield will show all live soccer games from around the world and will offer locally produced food at reasonable prices. The classic American menu — read: seriously, not your average bar fare — will feature locally sourced products wherever possible and the draught will focus on local craft beers. Check out the extraordinary menu here. Teaser: The Smithfield Burger — Angus beef, candied foie gras, shaved truffles, 100 year aged balsamic reduction.
And, read this glowing review for more.

Smithfield…combines classic elements of the football bar, traditional Irish pub and lounge, and fine restaurant into a beautifully designed and thought out package that is unique, friendly, and affordable.

Please join us on Tuesday! Bring your friends!

* - Jameson whiskey is distilled in the Smithfield area of northern Dublin, hence the establishment’s name.

Nice try placing that Transformer in the middle of Times Square, Paramount. But if you really want attention, stick Shia on a pole.

Move over Patience and Fortitude - you have some company. Here is a real, true blue, library lion, brought to you in honor of Caturday. This ridiculously cute little cub visited our New Dorp Library recently as part of a “Wild @ NYPL” program, run by Andrew Simmons and his traveling zoo. It’s for kids ages 12 to 18, and there’s one today at 2 p.m. at our Todt Hill-Westerleigh location. Check out our website to find other “Wild @ NYPL” programs. And happy Caturday!!

Did you think that the NYPD would keep those T3 electric standup scooters’ roaming restricted to subway stations alone? A subway rider saw one on  the shuttle train between Times Square and Grand Central, prompting a  reaction that surely spanned the range from “What the!” to “Well, at  least he’s not parked in the bike lane.” (via Gothamist)
